Are you looking for a way to help your fellow UUCJ members while maintaining proper physical distance? We are looking for folks who can get on the phone and provide coaching in the following areas:
- Help somebody sign into Breeze, update their own contact information, and access the online directory. This will allow more of our members to stay in touch by phone
- Help somebody download and use Zoom for the first time. This will allow more of our members to attend worship, small groups, and pastoral conversations.
- Help somebody learn more about their home computers so they can use them successfully with Zoom and other platforms.
If you can help, please email Rev. Roberta (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will put you in touch with somebody who will appreciate your help!
What does it mean to be a people of trust? Sure, the current pandemic has caused a lot of changes to our personal lives and our life together in faith. But we can still work together on transition themes and issues. This week Rev. Roberta will lead two Zoom sessions of the Soul Matters workshop on trust that she led in person just a few weeks ago. Those who participated found the sessions challenging and affirming. You will get the most out of the workshop if you take a look at the spiritual exercises in advance and try one of them out for a few days. You can find them here: https://uucj.org/grow/adults/trust-exercises/. The session will be either Thursday April 2nd @ 7 pm (https://zoom.us/j/180107121) or Friday April 3rd @ 10 am (https://zoom.us/j/575168190).
Thanks for continuing to make donations even during the social distancing of due to Coronavirus. Sara May donated 10 pounds which was added to other contributions.

Others have indicated that they planned to make donations, but did not share the weight of their contributions.
Please continue to make donations because the need is great and increasing. Please take the appropriate precautions when shopping, making deliveries, and when returning home.
